/ NEWS: Wide Boys Hit America: Pete Whittaker and Tom Randall
"The part of the trip I'm most apprehensive about is trying Lucille in Vedauwoo (it's such a hugely significant route) or realising that I've actually booked our flights for the wrong country and we're off to Yemen." commented Tom.

Hi Morgan, Thanks for the link and subtle feedback on the web design ;-)
ok - my apologies....i do love the content and what Pete and Tom are doing but white text on a black background is an internet pet hate of mine....you could even say it's a bete noir.
Brilliant, any beta on how to persuade the other half that turning your basement into a torture chamber is a good idea?

if she's a bit kinky i'm sure it could be quite easy ;-)
Go Team Esoterica.
Ryan Pasquill , Pete Hurley and gang have also set off for
the states . Looks like a strong team
Bars Boulders and Crags beware!! Can't wait for the tales
They are size 5 and 6 technical friends and no one makes them anymore as wild country seem to have discontinued them. The only comparable sized cams you'll find in the uk are the largest camalots which retail for £85-100 each :-)

What exactly have they been training on in the dank cellar, one would hope the training involved would be jamming techniques outdoors. Best of luck to them.
Given that they've both soloed what is probably the hardest off-width in the peak I suspect there is a lack of suitable outdoor training available :-)
That cellar isn't like normal ones....
I've seen the cellar. It's not pretty. Full of vile offwidths.
MKEAN has a good point: if you've done the hardest already on solo, what else is there to do?
A little bit of an update: http://alexekins.co.uk/wide-boyz-in-vedauwoo-part-one/

Is it a good idea to give these disreputable perverts the oxygen of publicity ?
Every time I see a pic of Randall with his feet above his head it just makes me sick...it,s just plain wrong I tell you.
God put our feet down there for reason !
